Collect juvenile herring, juvenile white perch and
mummichogs from Oyster Pond for the mercury study.  Herring,
juvenile white perch and mummichogs will be sampled between the
culvert at Surf Drive and the weir. Some specimens of herring were
collected from Trunk River, just upstream of the bike path bridge.
Information to be Derived

Successful fish collections were made during the evenings of
September 16 (3 white perch, 50 mummichogs); Sept. 1994 (4 white
perch);  Sept.25 (14 juvenile herring, 8 juvenile white perch, 12
mummichogs); Sept. 28(1 post spawn adult herring, 1 juvenile herring
from the Trunk River just above bike path bridge); Sept. 29 (3
juvenile herring S of wier); October 16, 2008 (16 juvenile herring 3
